For any of you wanting more information on recovery for yourself or someone you love, or who just want to share information about recovery on your social media platforms this month they’ve got you covered.
I found out about this online training recently and wanted to share it:
Learn to support someone struggling with their mental health through this online course created by Jack.org in partnership with Born This Way Foundation.
You can sign up on the website below and let us know what you think about it.
We haven’t been brought up to talk, especially when things are difficult. We’ve been encouraged to “man up” instead. I’m all for having strength, but not talking when it’s necessary is killing too many men for us to continue. That’s true everywhere, and even though I’m not in Australia, I know it’s true there as well. Let’s hope this resource reaches plenty of them.
Cook Children’s Health Care System in Texas has started a new podcast about kids’ mental health as part of their Joy Campaign which is a suicide prevention communication initiative.
I’m a firm believer that we don’t need any kind of special permission to talk about mental health and the stories of people dealing with mental health issues any day that we want to, but I also wanted to bring a couple of special days that are being set aside in Canada and the UK for the purpose.
Mental Health America put together some resources in one place that might prove helpful for anyone just looking to talk, whether it be through a Warmline, a peer-to-peer chat, or if need be, a crisis line.
As you go through the holidays, whatever that might look like for you, it might not hurt to keep this link handy so that you can easily find a place to help feel a little less alone in what you are dealing with.
